Today is National Hot Dog Day in USA. Not sure it really a National Day but it is a chance to celebrate one of America’s favorite summer sandwiches. Add lots of condiments. First Sunday in August is National Mustard Day for one of most used condiment on hot dogs.
It is summertime when Hot Dogs are everywhere. They are center stage on the grill, and at picnics all across America. They are at the ballpark. They are sold from carts on street corners in every city. It’s not hard to find them. We consume hundreds of millions of hot dogs on the Fourth of July alone. I had Nathan’s Beef Frank this year on the Fourth of July. I like my hot dog with mustard, ketchup and dill pickle.
